This was a really cute movie. Tim thinks he has the perfect life. It’s just him and his parents. They dote on him and he doesn’t have to share their love with anyone. That is until they mention a little brother. Tim has a wild imagination and he believes that his new brother arrives in a taxi, wearing a full suit and carrying a briefcase. His parents stop spending much time with him because the baby demands all of their attention and then Tim learns that he can talk and comes from a big corporation where he was sent on assignment to stop a new breed of puppies from hitting the market.

Tim is struggling with the idea of sharing his parents because he doesn’t think that they will be able to love them both. Boss baby is trying to stop this new puppy from coming out because this puppy will take all of the parents love from the baby. The two ideas parallel each other.

I liked the fact that I couldn’t tell if everything was actually going on or it if was just all a part of Tim’s very vivid imagination. Especially at the end where we learn that Tim is sharing this story with his daughter because she has just become a new big sister. His daughter asks if the story is real and he says it’s how he remembers it.

As much as Tim and the baby (Ted) despised each other, they quickly bond over their shared interest in stopping the puppy. Ted doesn’t want to be “fired” and made to be a real baby and Tim wants Ted to go back to his job so he can go back to being an only child.

The overall message of the movie is that there is enough love to go around for all. Tim and Ted want to stay together at the end of the assignment and of course they do, with Ted being a normal baby and not the boss.

Just a really cute movie and good for kids to see. It teaches them about sharing and love. I also think adults should watch this as well. With the way this world is going, everyone can learn about love and sharing, lol. Seriously.

Film Friday – Christmas Belle (2013)

All this extra cheese.

Hey Love-bugs,

Back with another Christmas movie for Film Friday and here is your spoiler alert.

This movie was super cheesy and you know I like cheesy. However, it was almost a little too cheesy for me.

Christmas Belle is supposed to be a cute little retelling of Beauty and the Beast. At least that’s what I got out of it. Isabelle aka Bella works as an estate planner or something like that. Basically she goes to estates to catalog their items for sale. Her father Rex gets her to go to the Lowell estate, even though he was supposed to be the one to do it. Right away Hunter Lowell is distant and cold (we know that won’t last long) and he doesn’t want her there. But because he is trying to sell his home before Christmas he agrees to let her say and do her job.

I can’t say if there is an immediate attraction there like you can pick up on in most movies like this. Hunter is determined to keep his distance and Belle who is friendly with everyone she meets tries to be warm to him. It’s just her personality. She’s nice to everyone she meets.

Then there’s Tony. The guy who wants Belle but who Belle doesn’t want.

It got extremely cheesy for me when Hunter yelled at Belle once, count it once, and she was ready to run for the hills. She just couldn’t take him being rude and talking to her with little respect. I guess that would have been fine if he had been a complete a-hole the entire time. The only thing I saw him do was keep his distance. When she went into a room his estate manager was sure to tell her was off limits, was the only time that he exploded on her.

Then he chases after her to get her to come back and finish working for him and suddenly the sparks are flying. I’m still trying to figure out how we got from point A to point Z. Trying to wrap my head around that.

They start spending time together and feelings grow. Typical for this type of film.

When Tony showed up and started causing problems for the two I knew that was coming. Tony was determined to get Belle to marry him and there was no way that he was going to let Hunter win. He went as far as to call himself her boyfriend and then lie to Hunter that she was using him for his library (which wasn’t that impressive).

Hunter believes it and then when he learns the truth he goes after her, asks her to marry him and they wed on Christmas day.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. They’ve known each other for like four days. Can you really know that you’ve met your soulmate after only four days? And then they don’t even have a long engagement to get to know each other better. My head is still spinning.

I mean, by all rights it is a cute movie and I think Haylie Duff is a pretty decent actress. There was just more cheese then I tend to like in my movies and I love cheese.

It: Chapter One – Thoughts

Well 140 followers I finally watched IT the 2017 version and…

I loved it.

The problem with so many people is, if there is a remake to just about anything, instead of watching it with fresh eyes they have to sit and pick it apart comparing it to the original.

Please stop doing that.

This new version is good. It’s dark and the acting is really good. It has all of the making of a scary story. The 90s version just doesn’t do it for me. It may be because I never watched it as a kid. I just never got why people were so afraid and why they found Tim Curry to be so creepy as Pennywise. Bill Skarsgard on the other hand. Creepy. He was perfection and I could totally see why people would be afraid of clowns after his performance.

Now, this isn’t to get you to dislike the “original” version. In fact, I think you should watch them both. I just think that you should watch the updated version as if you were watching any movie for the first time. Once you do this you won’t be disappointed.

All of those pesky flashbacks are gone and we will just get the adults story in the second film. The acting was spot on and believable. It was just an all around good movie and I definitely recommend it.

I give this film ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Go check it out, that is if you aren’t terrified of clowns because Skarsgard will make that fear worse.
